Whenever there is a car accident, police may investigate to find out whether or not alcohol played a role in the crash. If a DUI arrest occurs, the person may face serious consequences in a Tennessee criminal court. If there are prior convictions for drunk driving, those consequences can be much more serious.
Recently, there was a car accident on a Sunday morning. The police responding to the scene reportedly smelled alcohol on a man who was driving. Police also said the man had slurred speech and was not steady on his feet. Also, it was reported that there were two open cans of beer in the vehicle.
